Have a dayton 3F405D propane greenhouse heater don't know where to light the pilot light.


Find where the gas line connects to the gas valve on the back of the heater, from the gas valve, follow a small aluminum tube going into the back of the heater. There may be a removable door to access the pilot assembly. If there is no aluminum tube, the unit has electronic ignition and no pilot lite. Turn the gas knob to off, then to pilot. Hold the gas valve in and with a long match or gas grill lighter, light the pilot. Continue to hold the knob in for about 30 seconds. After that, release the knob and check to make sure the pilot stays lit. If so, rotate the knob to ON. The thermostat will kick the burners on.

i suggest you change thermocouple on heater it is the pilot control, firstly i would find where it attach's to valve and make sure it is screwed into valve properly (do not over tighten). If the pilot still doesn't go change the thermopile and if that don't work change the valve, but it most likely the thermocouple

Pool heater


This is an old, but good heater. Power is either stopping thru the safety loop, high limits or pressure switch, or the pilot generator is tiring out and not sending enough power to keep the gas valve open.

Pilot will stay on but burners will not ignite, checked all switches seem to be working allright, still no burner ignition


Possibly a flow switch not closed, or a limit switch open. May even be the pilot generator not producing enough mili-volts to operate the gas valve. Safest way is to have it serviced by a heating contractor. You dont have to call a pool company unless you wish.

Pilot will light but heater will not ignight


You may need to replace the Ignition Module. Have someone check to see if it is sending power. I have the same problem and need to replace the Fenwal automatic ignition system. The part cost $390 - check inside the heater for the model #

Pilot on main burner won't light.


30 ohms is too high. You generally need it close to or below 1. You need to read the ohms across each switch to find the connection or switch that is holding up your control voltage from opening the valve. If that still doesn't work, jump the th terminals on the valve and see if the valve even opens. You may need a new valve.
